    Come join our Media West Realty office, and a good portion of the City of Burbank for, "Burbank on Parade" tomorrow morning Saturday April 14, 2012 at 11 am.  This year's theme is the world of aviation and its heroes so one should expect to see some great costumes and floats!

    The parade route will be on Olive Ave. and run between Keystone and Lomita. Parking can be easily found on side streets but do arrive early since good spots go quickly.

    We hope to see you there!
